Poor Cooling Performance? Your Thermostat May Be Responsible

When you come back home after a day out in the hot, humid environment that we’re so familiar with around here, you should feel more comfortable immediately. If you’ve begun to realize, though, that your air conditioner just is not living up to your expectations, that is just not possible. We recommend scheduling service with a member of our team to determine precisely what is behind your subpar cooling performance. It may actually be your thermostat in Columbia, SC.

Your thermostat is the conduit through which you communicate with your air conditioner, telling it when it’s reached your preferred temperature level. If your thermostat is not able to do it’s job properly, you are just not going to be able to live in the level of comfort that we know you deserve. There are a few reasons as to why your thermostat may be negatively affecting the performance of your AC.

It’s possible that your thermostat is actually malfunctioning. If this is the case, a trained professional may be able to repair the thermostat. Often, though, once a thermostat has failed, a replacement is the preferred course of action. You’ll be able to successfully regulate your AC, and you can upgrade to a more advanced thermostat in the process.

Of course, you may just have your thermostat installed in a less than ideal spot in your home. If your thermostat is in direct sunlight, for instance, or if it is a poorly insulated area or against an exterior door, it may not function properly. If this is the case, we can relocate it for you.

Finally, don’t rule out the possibility that you’ve just set your thermostat wrong. You should always check your settings before deciding that your thermostat is compromised. You may have set the temperature too high, or even switched it to a fan-only mode accidentally.
